Plans for Ryse: Son of Rome SmartGlass challenge editor canceled

Posted on February 21, 2014 AT 09:02am

Ryse: Son of Rome will not be getting the once promised SmartGlass challenge editor for its Gladiator mode, Microsoft has confirmed.

The original plan was to release an editor that would allow players to create challenges and objectives for the game’s Gladiator mode, using the SmartGlass app. These creations could then be uploaded and downloaded by others to try. The more people that played your creation the more in-game rewards you could earn.

However, when Polygon recently questioned Microsoft about the editor’s release the company gave the following response: ”After careful consideration, we have decided to cease development on Ryse: Son of Rome’s challenge editor and focus on improving and expanding fans’ experience with the game through both free content updates and purchased add-on packs. We look forward to sharing more details soon.”

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that the Mars’ Chosen Pack would be released for the game on February 28 for $8.99. The pack includes a new Survival mode, five maps, and a new character skin.
